AUGUSTA -- Cherie M. Lufkin Blackett passed away Tuesday, March 12, at her home with her family and friends at her side, following an extended battle with cancer. She was born May 8, 1963, in Greenville, the only daughter of Kenneth A. and Goldie M. Lufkin Sr. She was predeceased by both her parents.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Frank Mackay Blackett Jr., of Augusta; her only daughter, Amy M. Danforth Stackpole, and husband Barrett, of Gardiner; her only son, Kenneth R. Danforth, of Augusta; her amazing grandchildren, Lillian Marie and Michael Anthony Stackpole and Dawn Alexis Schroeder-Danforth; her eldest brother, Kenneth Jr., and wife Donna, of Gardiner, and their children Andrew, Alana and Jeremy; and her brother, Keith, and wife Andrea, of Farmingdale; her incredible sister-in-law, Patricia Blackett, of Augusta;, most importantly by the love of her life, her wonderful dog, Peanut.

Cherie had a love of the outdoors in spite of an allergy to bee stings. There was nothing she loved more than digging in the garden or mowing the lawn and mulching. So what if she got a little dirty. The garden was a piece of heaven.

Inside activities included her passion for reading. These included mystery/thriller books. And she knows you are laughing at this, but she was a sucker for a good show on TV about ghost stories! OOH!

In a nutshell, Cherie loved life and helping those around her. She loved to spend time with her babies and go to McDonalds for Happy Meals, or go to the park to play on the playground. She played a round or two of Old Maid and always lost! The same with Trouble. But she was thrilled to see the laugh of her beloved little ones as they beat her at these games. Towards the end, as Cherie got more tired, she always had someone to nap with her, yes, Peanut. All she had to do was stand up and say "well" and Peanut would grab his baby and head to bed for his nap.

A memorial service will be at 6 p.m. Monday, March 18, at Staples Funeral Home, 53 Brunswick Ave., Gardiner.
